    Introducing the Desktop Laptop: EUROCOM SKY X9


    Brian

    ORIGINAL AUTHOR: Mr. Fox

    What better place for a laptop with desktop hardware than a desktop hardware thread? This was intentionally not placed in a notebook OEM thread. The CPU and GPU are both desktop core awesomeness.

    @Prema and I will be putting together a full review in the next week or so and this will be a thread for discussion. Opening post is a placeholder.

    You can find the REVIEW here:

      Dear Respected Members,
      I want your advice please:
      Upgrading my Clevo P570WM from GTX 880m SLI to GTX 980m SLI (=$2000) 
      or  the new GTX 1070/1080 if applicable? I need to verify if it will support one or 2 of them in SLI??
      or Get a new Clevo P870 or Eurocom Sky 9XE Unlocked with the 980m's SLI (=$3500)? and then I have to sell my old Beast
       
      and if your advice is to go for the new system, what is the best choice?:
      1- GTX 980m SLI
      2- GTX 980 Desktop
      3- Just wait for the GTX 980 Desktop SLI?
      4- GTX 1070/1080 if applicable
      5- Something else
       
      Best Regards.

      Dear Members,
      I just want to create this Topic to list all laptop systems supporting (2X) Desktop GTX 980 SLI, and all information related to them, technical, pricing and reviews. In the same time, it will help me and other respected members to decide which one should we buy.

      These days a lot of the rage is in thin and light notebooks and while that is fine for a lot of people, there is a substantial number of performance enthusiasts (especially found on this website) that want the exact opposite. This group of enthusiast demands the pinnacle of performance built right into the notebook and not a thin and light compromise saddled with an Intel BGA processor and soldered GPU.
       
      Well Clevo and Eurocom are listening and Eurocom let us know that they have launched the new Sky DLX7 notebook that is aimed squarely at those aforementioned enthusiasts. But you don't have to be a gamer to want this DTR (desktop replacement) because it will offer the same amount of productivity as any formidable desktop, especially with it's 17.3" display with 4k resolution and 64 GB of DDR4 RAM. It can also support up to 4 active displays thanks to its two mini Display Ports, USB 3.1 and HDMI 2. 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       

       
      The Sky DLX7 uses Intel's latest Z170 chipset with socket LGA 1151 which allows it to support the latest 14nm Skylake desktop processors up to the Core i7-6700K that operates at 4 GHz and has a turbo boost of 4.2 GHz. In addition, the CPU can be further overclocked for true high end desktop level performance. For those that like to keep upgrading their notebooks, the Sky DLX7 supports MXM 3.0b graphics cards such as the NVIDIA GTX 980 desktop (full desktop level card in an MXM package) and professional Quadro mobile cards. 
       

       
      Unlike many competing notebooks, this DTR won't have trouble keeping itself cool as it features high capacity copper heatsinks and fans to keep things chilled. 
       

       
      There doesn't appear to be a shortage of space either as it can support two 9.5 mm HDD or SSD bays and two M.2 SSD PCIe x 4 SATA drives with RAID 0/1/5/10 availability.  There's no word on final pricing but given all the power this thing packs, it probably can get pricey very quickly. 
       
      EUROCOM Sky DLX7 Specifications:
      Special Feature(s): Intel Z170 Chipset; Skylake-S; supports both mobile and a desktop based GTX 980 GPU Main Chipset: Intel Z170 (Skylake) Processor: Socket LGA 1151
